Modes include One-on-One (regular match and steel cage match variations), Tag Team, WWF Championship (choose one wrestler and defeat all the others to become WWF Champion), and Tag Team Championship (choose two wrestlers and defeat combinations of the rest in a series of tag team matches to become WWF Tag Team Champions).
Ten wrestlers are playable. All versions of the game feature Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, I.R.S., Randy Savage, Ted DiBiase and The Undertaker. The NES version also has Jake Roberts, Roddy Piper, Sid Justice and The Mountie. The Sega versions replace those characters with Papa Shango, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and Tatanka.
All wrestlers share the same moveset, consisting of standard punches and kicks, grapples (body slam, throw, headbutt), running attacks (flying clothesline, dropkick), a powerslam to a running opponent, ground attacks (stomp, elbow drop) and a move off the turnbuckle. There are no finishing moves. However, this was the first WWF console-based game to feature a steel cage match (cage matches had previously been seen in the arcade game WWF WrestleFest).
